guys if this kid is 150 and wants to lean out i think having him read every article is the last he’s gonna want.
i remember when i first started out, i wanted to be ripped like the guys from 300. i read every article, i started DIETING (at 170 6ft) and lets just say it was cause i had all this info and wanted to apply everything.
bodybuilding is just like anything else, you want to keep it as simple as you can. at your weight you just need a basic split program. its pretty simple to diagnose a scheme:
you can probaly do 2 parts per training day since your so new to this.
chest/back or chest/triceps
back/biceps (if you arent already doing back+chest)
you can do things like shoulders and abs in the same day also.
that would give you 5 days on 2 days off
you could compress it more and add take a seperate day and split them into 2 other days to make it 4 days with 3 off. so for example add shoulders to arms and calves into legs and there ya go, 4 days.
next you choose your lifts. you want to start each session with a compound lift, look that up if you dont know what it is. anywhere from 3-4 sets with 6-8 reps. you descend from the most taxing lifts to the least as your program continues so you wouldnt start with a close-grip press then do pushdowns then do skullcrushers because pushdowns are a very non-taxing isolation movement.
some people reccomend going with higher reps when you first start out as its supposed to help you get better acquainted to ROM and just overall getting used to lifting, pushing yourself, etc.
i suggest you hang out in beginners section for a while. generally the bodybuilding section is for people who already have been doing this for a bit and want to discuss bodybuilding.
also due to the nature of this site (testosterone/alpha) youre expected to kinda go out and attempt solving your own problems instead of just hoping everyone will do it for you. which doesnt mean its wrong to ask questions but its kinda like you just wandered into here and were like uhhhh what do i do?
so yea, just hang in beginners and learn the ropes. just dont become a “starting strength” pawn.
